We work with a number of restorers in London, the home counties and in the West Country, we can work with you to establish which of our team of restorers will offer you the best option to restore your painting or work on paper. The choice we arrive at will be the best choice suit your expectation and budget. Our restorers ensure that only the highest possible standards are achieved.
Matthew Goldsmith's studios is equipped with the largest vacuum operated hot table in private hands within Europe; thus ensuring that lining and indeed all aspects of the conservation process are undertaken 'in house' and never sub-contracted. Maintaining total control of all phases of the restoration process, from receiving the painting into the studio, to completion and eventual return to its owner is a central concept at Trade Painting.
A team of internationally trained, multilingual staff ensure that only the highest possible standards are achieved in order to meet the demands of a discerning client base. These include galleries and collectors in Great Britain, the USA, Australia, Germany, Holland, Greece and the Middle East. In addition, the collections within many of England's famous country houses including those of Earl Howe, Lord and Lady Arran and the Honorable David Astor have all received the care and attention for which we are renowned. The world's major auction houses including Sotheby's and Christies are also among our regular clients.
Consultancy is an important aspect of our work; prospective clients often need to know exactly what is possible and the best way to achieve it. On many occasions extensive testing and preparatory work must be undertaken. Clients who have benefited from our expertise in this regard include The White House (Washington DC), Clarence House and the residence of John Paul Getty III. In addition to our own expert team we are also able to draw upon the expertise of several specialist authorities, including Catherine Hassall of University College London, Dr. Phil Shaw of Middlesex University and the Courtauld Insititute of Great Britain.
